    Bookmarker's Notes

    I don't read HP/DM. Unless it's recced to me, apparently, and BOY AM I GLAD it was recced to me, because I really enjoyed it.

    I love a leisurely, slow build-up, and man, Reparations delivers. If you're wary of starting a 300+k monster of a fic, rest assured that the first part is 'only' about 80k long and can be read as a standalone story. My guess, though, is that you'll want to read on once you're done with it. I did.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    So basically, I clicked past this several times because of the warnings.

    Then one day, I decided to look at the actual author's notes -- they make a couple of things clear that made me think okay, let's give this a shot...

    I read the entire story in about two days, and I really, really liked it. Then I was devastated because the sequel is unfinished -- but hey, my own fault, should've checked instead of just assuming.

    This is one of those cases that are a mass of things I don't normally enjoy (even beyond the warnings -- soulbonds, D/s-AU ...) , executed so extremely well that I can't NOT recommend it. Go, read, sit down with me to fangirl about it. Helens78 and Cesare did a stellar job.

    Summary

    Duke Erik Lehnsherr of Ironhold needs an omega to carry on his line, and Earl Charles Xavier of Westchester needs an alpha to give him the political leverage he needs in order to make his sister Queen. An arranged marriage brings them together, but Erik's lust for war and Charles' hidden agenda threaten to tear them apart. In the frozen Northlands of Ironhold life is hard and cold, and both Charles and Erik must give up their pretense and see each other as they really are: perfect for each other, if only they'll acknowledge it.
